Chip butties are the ultimate British staple.
You really can’t get much better than carbs on carbs – but a chippy has taken the dish to a whole new level.
Flounders Fish and Chips in Bolton, Greater Manchester, has started deep frying the butties.
The battered treat is served with a choice of English curry, Chinese curry, gravy or mushy peas.
And according to takeaway staff, the indulgent menu item has been flying off shelves recently.
Victoria Flatters, who has owned the business for eight years, believes she is the only chippy in the area to sell the battered baps.
The 50-year-old told MEN: “My daughter sent me a link about a battered and the shop was doing it down South.
“We weren’t sure about it because we thought it would be a bit of a mess.
“But they’re quite light and really nice.
“People have been coming back for more – one customer has been every day for two weeks!”
The fried chip butties are made by putting the bread in the fryer for three to four minutes.

The bap is then cooked on the other side with chips placed inside it.
Victoria, who lives in Blackrod, continued: “We are the only ones doing it in the area. I don’t know anyone else that’s doing it.
“We just thought we would do a bit of variety.
“With demand I have to keep up with what people like and what the changes are, it’s been a brilliant response.”
